This photo from last night is a bit of an optical illusion. The piece on the right does have a slight concave curve from the largest diameter up to the opening. The right side of the photo makes it look like the curve isn't there because of the void on that side of the blank.

Even after realizing that it was an optical illusion I still wanted to refine the shape a bit to emphasize the reverse curve. This shot from the back side better shows the refined curve and the overall shape.

The side view shows the illusion again, not as bad as before as you can better see the curve on the right hand side. This illusion reminds me of a normal natural edge bowl, where the bowl appears oval from the top and sides due to the missing wood.
